updating addons


Mary Otten
 

I had a couple of notifications for updates to add ons that I have installed. App esseentials gave me an error when I tried to update. Weather plus just went  away. Not the addon itself, but the chance to update. And from within addons manager, I'm not seeing a method to check for updates or update those I know have them. I'm undoubtedly missing something.

Both of those have their own settings, both under preferences I think.
If you go in there and check for updates, they should work. It did for
Windows App Essentials anyway. I don't know why the automatic check
gives an error but last time that happened to me I just went in and told
it to check for updates and it worked.

I had the exact same problem.

NVDA  Notified me that there was an Essentials Addon update  available.  When I tried to apply the update I got an error which said that the Windows Essentials update could not be applied and have heard nothing since.

As an addendum I went to NVDA  and preferences and then Windows 10  App Essensials  at the bottom of the preferences menu and I was  then able to apply the Addon update manually

Hi


There is a menu called weather plus.


it can be found under the nvda preferences by pressing the following. Press the nvda key + the letter N, arrow down to preferences then right to general settings then down to weather plus. A sub menu will come off it and look for the one down the bottom called check for upgrade or update. it when pressed on with the enter key will tell you what version you have and what the new one is then it is a matter of gettings it.


I think the wind 10 essentials add on is the same idea.

Trying to update the add-on from W10 app essentials update notification usually fails for me too. I can't remember the last time it actually worked but as you say, using the check for ADD-ON update feature in the Preferences menu does the job.

Cheers
Chris

Hi,

Looks like a test release is in order… I’ll make sure you can obtain the actual error message when this happens.

Hi,
A few questions:
* When this happens, did NVDA prompt you to update itself?
* Which release of Windows 10 App Essentials did you try to update from and to?
* Do you have any other add-ons that opens a dialog when NVDA starts?
Thanks.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi,
I need the exact message. There are numerous possibilities for this, including failed downloads, errors during installation and what not. If you hear the progress beeps and then get an error message, chances are that something has gone wrong at either the download or installation phases.
BTW, Lee is my last name.

Hi,
One thing you can try: when the error occurs, try pressing NVDA+F1 to open log viewer, then copy and paste the last error you get.

Hi Joseph and All,
In my case, it only happened once two weeks ago. Since then, I haven’t gotten the message to update the app essential add on. I don’t recall the message I got. I'll download the add on and try to install it to see what will happen and report.
Blessings

Hi,
I need the exact message. There are numerous possibilities for this, including failed downloads, errors during installation and what not. If you hear the progress beeps and then get an error message, chances are that something has gone wrong at either the download or installation phases.
BTW, Lee is my last name.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi,
A few questions:
* When this happens, did NVDA prompt you to update itself?
* Which release of Windows 10 App Essentials did you try to update from and to?
* Do you have any other add-ons that opens a dialog when NVDA starts?
Thanks.
Cheers,
Joseph

This also happened to me for the past 3 or 4 times that essentials has notified me to an update. Thank You.

Hi,

Looks like a test release is in order… I’ll make sure you can obtain
the actual error message when this happens.

Cheers,

I had the exact same problem.

NVDA Notified me that there was an Essentials Addon update available.
When I tried to apply the update I got an error which said that
the Windows Essentials update could not be applied and have heard nothing since.

I had a couple of notifications for updates to add ons that I have

installed. App esseentials gave me an error when I tried to update.

Weather plus just went away. Not the addon itself, but the chance to

update. And from within addons manager, I'm not seeing a method to
check

for updates or update those I know have them. I'm undoubtedly missing

something.
